Marry Me

With two stand out leads, the freshman NBC sitcom, Marry Me has great potential. After dating for 6 years, Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) are finally getting married.  After multiple botched proposals, they finally get it right. We are introduced to all of the characters and get a sense of who they are without much effort or expositional dialogue. The quick and witty writing is welcomed and while I laughed out loud multiple times I am worried their relationship alone is not enough to sustain the show for a whole season, or looking on a larger scale, multiple seasons. The pilot was hilarious, and while the second episode’s main story line of moving in together was not as strong which I think was a result of Annie and Jake being apart from one another for a large majority of the episode. That being said, the supporting characters all had great story lines that did not always directly relate to Annie and Jake, which was refreshing.
